All terrains are some of the best orienteering sand dune terrains of Hungary shaped by the wind. This terrain type is very diverse and detailed, even featuring relatively small hills with 10-20 m height difference. This area allows for high speed running with its domestic vegetation (technical name: forest steppe), large and small patches of forest interspersed with open grassy fields.

The maze-like domestic junipers greatly complicate the orienteering challenge and reduce running speed. In place of domestic vegetation different species (poplar, acacia, pine and black pine) forests were planted in many places over the last century, almost all these forests are part of the Kiskunság National Park. In the young planted forests it is difficult to run, they can be passed almost only in the planting direction and the visibility is very limited, but in the older forests runnability and visibility are excellent. The herbaceous undergrowth is not particularly difficult to run in, it is strong during wet springs, but it regresses to midsummer and it cannot be found in the older pines at all.

Most of our training terrains include the above listed mixed vegetation types, thus allowing really various courses. A real treat in orienteering is the maze-like juniper forest that evolved in a variety of landscapes. It requires precise orienteering skills and a high degree of concentration.

Ágasegyháza

A mixture of good runability forests, juniper bushes with various runability and visibility, open grassy fields, scattered trees, and bushes. The landscape is varied by hills and depressions. “Ágasegyháza” was the Model Event terrain for all JWOC 2018 forest races.

Bócsa

A mixture of good runability forests and juniper bushes with various runability and visibility with challenging, labyrinth-like orienteering, with lots of route choices. This terrain is in the direct neighborhood of the JWOC 2018 middle distance terrain.

Bodoglár

A mixture of good runability forests, open grassy fields, scattered trees, and bushes. The landscape is varied by hills and depressions. Many possible route choices between controls.

Izsák

Varied landscape and similarities between features require a high technique of orienteering. A mixture of good runability forests, open grassy fields with sand dunes, scattered trees, and bushes.

Kaskantyú

(JWOC 2018 Middle distance)

Very special, and very unique terrain of the JWOC 2018 Middle distance race, which achieved the 2nd place at the “Course of the year 2018” voting, at “World of O”.
Most of the terrains consist open sand hills covered by dense junipers or grass. It is not possible to go through these junipers, labyrinth-type navigation is needed. The navigation runability and visibility is mostly very bad and challenging.
Attention! The availability of this terrain (especially of the JWOC 2018 Middle Final) is very limited because this area is protected at the highest level by the Kiskunság National Park! Please contact us for more information.

Kecskemét
(JWOC 2018 Sprint)

This area was the terrain of the JWOC 2018 Sprint, which was “The Sprint Course of the Year 2018” on the voting at “World of O”.
The terrain contains both narrow back-alleys and spacious rugged parks which are complemented by the Hungarian-style housing estate located nearby. These features are suitable for setting courses that satisfy the variety of needs in the sprint event.

Pirtó
(JWOC 2018 Long distance)

Mostly open sand dune forms the terrain that has dense vegetation in parts. In the northern part, there are some areas with more planted vegetation. The relief is very diverse and detailed, featuring relatively small hills with 10- 20 m height difference. Not too many tracks can be obtained in the southern part, some more in the northern part.

Szabadszállás – Strázsa-hegy

Mixture of good runability forests, and dense bushes (including juniper bushes) with various runability and visibility, open grassy fields and scattered trees and bushes. Varied landscape (hills and depression variety is quite big in this region). Attention! Especially in late spring, and summer, the vegetation could be very dense, this makes the runability and the visiblity more difficult.

Szeged

Typical Hungarian Sprint terrain in the downtown of Szeged. Spacious parks with many objects, narrow back-alleys, small labyrinth-like streets, and small inner courts inside the blocks, connections between streets.

Tázlár
(JWOC 2018 Relay)

A mostly semi-open area with trees and bushes, with diverse contours in the sand dunes. Runnability is very high, visibility is sometimes limited dominantly by the detailed and forms and in lesser part by the patches of dense vegetation.
